The latest episode of my podcast the Starlifter.Dev Show is out now! In it I chat with my good friend Jamie Hamilton, Creative Director at MetaDigital.co.nz about making CD-ROMs, what's changed in the #Christchurch web scene over the years and how 2020 is shaping up.
Our online radio station #8KNZ

Hey Aotearoa | New Zealand, we’ve got this. Let’s kick this virus in the butt. To quote my man Del the Funky Homosapien; don’t let this virus “bring dire straits to our environment”. #BeKind #Covid19NZ #StayHome https://open.spotify.com/track/4CpWJkSodVFE3HSylu7ajJ?si=Nb7AT4-3Q0mxLYYSu6sCDg
Is this age of increased video calls what #webcam can people recommend? I dock my MBP and it's a pain in the butt to constantly pull it out to use the internal cam.
Do you need some time off social media? If you need permission, here it is. We will still be here tomorrow 😊 #DigitalDetox
What strange times we live in. Here’s Dr Hitchcock’s #DailyPickMeUp if you need it https://pitchfork.com/tv/59-pitchfork-music-festival-2016/1810-watch-julia-holter-perform-sea-calls-me-home-at-pitchfork-music-festival-2016/
Reiterating an earlier offer to folks in NZ (and overseas as well): before you slide further into the digital oblivion of MS Teams and Zoom, consider using open tools. Here in NZ, you can have pro bono access right now to chat - https://chat.nzoss.nz and video conferencing - https://bbb.nzoss.nz - both just require a modern browser, no software install. Easy peasy. All data & the services are onshore in NZ, thanks to sponsored hosting from CatalystCloud.nz !!

I've just uploaded my latest radio show dedicated to Timmy Dodgers, former show host of Guitar Media, a radio show that aired on RDU 98.5FM from the early 2000s to 2010. He died late last week and we're all gonna miss him so dearly.
RIP Timmy Dodgers.
So... I'm live on-air www.8k.nz right now doing a special show in memory of my old friend Timmy Dodgers, formerly of Guitar Media on #RDU985FM, who died late last week. Tune in for good tunes, good memories and plenty of love.
Any suggestions for rad #vegetarian pizza recipes?
Can anyone recommend a mainstream friendly, #OpenSource alternative to #Slack or #Discord? I’ve tried #Riot in the past but the peeps I was using it with had usability issues. I’m looking for a lighter, more constructive discussion to the one on #HackerNews https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22384356
